Hard to call it an all-time version since it was played fairly rarely, but when they broke out the first "Ballad of a Thin Man" in Hampton, I believe '86, though it could have been '87 or '88, they nailed it, and I knew it was an all-timer soon as it ended.

Ditto the "He's Gone", 'for Bobby Sands' that they did at Nassau '81 that ended up being released as a Dicks Picks. I just remember 14,000+ clapping in unison at one point, and the entire band/audience convergance, and soon as it ended, knowing it was an all-timer.
